Man City Manager Pep Guardiola Wants A Perfect Game Vs Liverpool

The armed guards outside the stadium were also a deterrent to potential trouble makers

Fernandinho admits they failed to cope with Liverpool in the first leg and says they must not concede if they are to have any chance of going through.

Liverpool are the strongest offensive line in the Champions League this season (31 goals), separated by a single goal of equating Manchester United (32 goals in 2002-2003) as the most English team to score goals in a season in the competition.

Pep Guardiola's side let a two-goal lead slip to blow the chance of securing the Premier League title against their bitter rivals and Fernandinho admitted that it has been a hard week. "If they start playing as they have most of the season, keeping the ball and scoring goals, it could be a close game". "I hope we can do our job".

Manchester City, meanwhile, squandered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to Manchester United on Eastlands to miss out on the chance to win the Premier League title. City conceded their six goals in the past two games during a pair of intense short spells and Guardiola said they have to be ready to deal with adversity. The Egyptian has scored eight times in the Champions League since last June.

"I think to reach the semi-final would be the second time in our lovely history". "Sometimes, we lack that craft and guile you need to get better results", he added.

Guardiola is not expecting any repeat of the crowd trouble which saw the City team bus attacked by Liverpool fans ahead of the first leg. "We have to play our game".

CBS NYC local reported the NYPD declining to comment on whether Vassell had been warned before firing. Vassell was the father of a 15-year-old boy, who said that his father, "cared for everybody".

Klopp's men were also thrashed 4-1 by Tottenham and involved in thrilling 3-3 draws at Arsenal and Sevilla as they were routinely torn apart on their toughest travels before Van Dijk's arrival.

He said: "I thought many times about that".

Head coach Jurgen Klopp opted to rest Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino during the Goodison Park meeting in preparation for this game against City.

Usually, when they go a goal or two up, they can just dictate the game, set the tempo and get their players on the ball. The high pressure, the intensity in the game was unbelievable, they nearly did it for 90 minutes.

City is facing an uphill task to come back from a 0-3 deficit after they lost to the Reds last week.

The big question in this game is this: will Liverpool be able to sit back and defend and not play their usual game of high-pressing and forcing the issue?
